Is this one bolt behind the power steering pump pulley?

It must be. The whole accessory bracket should not need to come off. Only the ps pump. And even then..you remove the bolts and lower it down..not disconnect.

Leave the alternator. Take two bolts out of the PS pump (access through the pulley). Set PS pump aside. Remove WP bolt.

Hold on, none of the accessories are hiding that bolt. Just the bracket itself.

You've got two choices: remove bracket or remove part of the bracket with a dremel.

The bracket has some bolts hiding behind and underneath.

I think it was the series II K motor that has the one bolt behind the water pump pulley.
Maybe a pic of this braket on the 93 would help.

When a car is running warm and out of coolant...you don't speed up and push it harder. You stop..let it cool and walk the darn mile home (like Dbeast to the parts store) and curse yourself for not triple checking things.
